After 5 min of driving, the sound is gone. I can't seem to pin point what is causing this rattle/vibration. Anyone else have this issue or know what might be the problem?
Ok mines a 2012 and I have a grinding vibration on start up and a short distance of driving.As it turns out its the Advance Trac Page 268 2012 (manual) Quote
"When Advance Trac performs a normal system self-check,some drivers may notice a slight movement of the brake,and/or a rumble/grunting,or grinding noise after startup and when driving off."

It sounds horrendous and was about to go to see about it untill I read that,its identical everytime so thats consistant with a self check routine.Anyway that might be what your hearing as well.
